Description

This is a 2nd pitch extension to "The Joker" and is a bit harder than the first pitch.
1st PITCH (80’) 5.10-****
Climb The Joker  for the 1st pitch to the belay ledge and chains at the mesquite tree.
2nd PITCH (130’) 5.10+****Move up and left to clip a bolt at the bulge (or traverse right from I’ll Be Your Poison Ivy first pitch belay). Climb the bulge on the right at a dirty crack then follow the bolts up the clean slab on the left. There is a tricky steep section with pretty good holds just past the midway point, then a real blank 85 degree slab just past that which finishes on a ledge (crux). Continue up above the ledge to an easy and fun  5.10 roof section and then angle left to the anchors at the end of Green Goddess 3rd pitch 5.10+ .            Real LONG pitch with a lot of bolts (18!)!!                                                -Descend by rappelling 3 pitches (single 60M rope ok) down Green Goddess to the ground-

Location

Climbs up left from the first pitch ledge where The Joker ends. Continue on a diagonal to the left to climb the clean slab above and finish on the end of Green Goddess at the top of the wall.

Protection

About 18 bolts !! (I think) to a 3 bolt anchor. The anchor is the same finish as Green Goddess 3rd pitch.
